Do you believe in miracles, or are you skeptical about them? What kind of events do you consider to be real miracles? No matter what your current perspective is on miracles, learning what others have to say about miracles may inspire you to look at the world around you in fresh ways. Here are some inspiring quotes about miracles.

A miracle is defined as, "an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs." It may be something that is possible but unlikely to happen when you need it to happen.

Or, it may be something that cannot be explained by current science except by divine intervention. A miracle may be something you request through prayer or the performance of a ritual, or it may be something you recognize as being miraculous when you happen upon it.

Quotes on Miracles Happening

If you are a skeptic, you are likely to challenge any extraordinary event and test whether it occurred as reported or has an explanation that doesn't rely on divine intervention. If you are a believer, you may pray for a miracle and hope your prayers are answered. Do you really need a miracle right now? These quotes can reassure you that they happen:

G.K. Chesterton
“The most incredible thing about miracles is that they happen.”

Deepak Chopra
”Miracles happen every day. Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here, in our own lives.”

Mark Victor Hansen
“Miracles never cease to amaze me.

I expect them, but their consistent arrival is always delightful to experience.”

Hugh Elliott
“Miracles: You do not have to look for them. They are there, 24-7, beaming like radio waves all around you. Put up the antenna, turn up the volume - snap... crackle... this just in, every person you talk to is a chance to change the world.”

Osho Rajneesh
“Be realistic: Plan for a miracle.”

Faith and Miracles

Many believe that their faith in God leads to answers to their prayers in the form of miracles. They see miracles as God's response and the proof that God hears their prayers. If you need inspiration that you can ask for a miracle and it will happen, see these quotes:

Joel Osteen
“It’s our faith that activates the power of God.”

George Meredith
”Faith works miracles. At least it allows time for them.”

Samuel Smiles
“Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles.”

Gabriel Ba
“Only when you accept that one day you'll die can you let go, and make the best out of life. And that's the big secret. That's the miracle.”

Quotes on Human Efforts Producing Miracles

What can you do to bring about miracles? Many quotes say that what is considered to be a miracle is actually the result of hard work, perseverance, and other human efforts. Rather than sit back and wait for divine intervention, you do what it takes to bring about the miracle you want to see. Get inspired to take action and create what could be considered to be a miracle with these quotes:

Misato Katsuragi
“Miracles don't just happen, people make them happen.”

Phil McGraw

“Positive thinking by itself does not work. Your embodied vision, partnered with vibrant thinking, harmonized with active listening, and supported with your conscious action, will clear the path for your miracles.”

Jim Rohn
“I have found in life that if you want a miracle you first need to do whatever it is you can do—if that’s to plant, then plant; if it is to read, then read; if it is to change, then change; if it is to study, then study; if it is to work, then work; whatever you have to do. And then you will be well on your way of doing the labor that works miracles."

Phillips Brooks
“Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle.”

The Nature of Miracles

What is a miracle and why do they occur? These quotes can inspire you to think about the nature of miracles:

Toba Beta

”The miracles on Earth are the laws of heaven.”

Andrew Schwartz
“If existence was ever a miracle, then existence is always a miracle.”

Laurie Anderson
“It's just such a great miracle when things do work, and they work for such a wild variety of crazy reasons.”

Nature Is a Miracle

Proof of divine intervention is seen by many people simply in that the world exists, people exist, and nature works. They see everything around them as a miracle, inspiring faith. While a skeptic may also be in awe of these facts, they might not attribute them to divine works, but rather the amazing workings of the natural laws of the universe. You can be inspired about the miracles of nature with these quotes:

Walt Whitman
“To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle. Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.”

“We open the halves of a miracle, and a clotting of acids brims into the starry divisions: creation's original juices, irreducible, changeless, alive: so the freshness lives on.”

Francois Mauriac
“To love someone is to see a miracle invisible to others.”

Ann Voskamp
"Gratitude for the seemingly insignificant—a seed—this plants the giant miracle.”
